inuk-mama - October 2

Hey everyone. Saw the postings on starting a new thread so thought I'd go ahead. Emfine, have fun with that new furniture! We'll talk to you once it's all done! :) Staci glad the shower went well! They're always fun! Everyone else, I'll do more personals later on. It's not even 6am here and I'm at work, blah! And I have to do that gd test today so no eating for me until about 2pm!!!!! I don't know if I can do it!!!!

 

inuk-mama - October 2

where is everyone today??? So quiet! I'm going to do my GD test in 2 hours so here's to hoping everything will be alright! I kind of couldn't stand the hunger and ate part of an orange this morning at 6 am but my test isn't until 1pm so I'm hoping it won't affect anything. I will let them know though! Sciatic nerve is killing me todayand the BH's last night were bad! The final weeks and everything is going downhill!!!

 

nicole12 - October 2

Good luck. Let us know how it goes!!!!!

 

emfine99 - October 2

Why would they do your GD test so late in the day? That's torture not being able to eat!!! When I had mine, they did it at 8am so I couldn't eat after midnight the night before, which was hell for me because I"m a night owl and I snack during the night!!!! Good luck on it! I'm sure you'll be fine! I just woke up actaully, it's 3pm, the furniture ppl come between 4-7 so I'll be downstairs cleaning things and getting ready for my new goodies! I'll be back on later :-)

Thank you inuk! Man that last thread was wayyyyy to long! Hoping your test is going well! Hi nicole! How is everyone? January any updates? I'm ok, ds and I have a cold now, ugh!! I hate colds! So I had strep then a cold, what's next? Gonna go so I can rest, didn't sleep good last night because i couldn't breathe, So I'll be back on later!

 

nicole12 - October 2

Staci, everything is good. I can't wait to have this little one, I don't think that my stomach can stretch any more. How are you feeling. I have been very busy working and getting things around for my shower that is October 14th and also my brother is home from the military to get married this Saturday and I am in the wedding. I have to pick up my dress tonight, it is the second one that I had to buy, b/c I grew out of the first one, but this one fits, that's all that counts. Take care.

 

nicole12 - October 2

I hope every one else is doing great!!!! We're almost there!!!!

 

angie m - October 2

Hi ladies. Staci sorry you and your little guy have a cold. That really sucks! I hope that you both get to feeling better soon. Seems like everyone on here has had a cold now. Gotta love this season, all the holidays and all the sickness. Inuk I hope that all goes well with your GD test. That sucks that you can't eat at all before it. I couldn't do that I would probably end up pa__sing out or something. I get super light headed after like 4 hours of not eating. So I make sure to eat all the time : ). Nicole that is neat that your brother is getting married and that you get to be in the wedding. Sounds like fun. I hope it goes great. Emfine I hope you take some pics of your new stuff and post it on the piczo site so we can all see it. Good luck getting everything all cleaned up and everything set up all nice. January were are you girl. Don't worry us like this. I hope everything is ok with you and Candle and you are just resting. I am doing good today. Except Karisma is still pretty low and I can't stop waddling. And I feel like I gotta poo all the time. I think she is resting on my intestines or something too. Only 8 more weeks tell my due date and 5 tell I am considered full term and can have this little girl. SO when are you ladies going to install your car seats? I am thinking at 35 weeks. Does that sound about right? And is anyone else finding it impossible to have s_x? I mean I don't really want to anyways but for hubby's sake I try and it takes like 30 min to find a positions that is sorta comfortable. Kinda kills the mood : (.

 

January - October 2

yay another post. hi all, yes i'm still around and was laying low yesterday after the bleeding episode. I did end up calling them. I told them and they told me to relax the rest of the day and if I saw more blood, call them immediately. Today was my regular u/s and appt. They also did a transv____al u/s to see my cervix.. it's still "long" so that's good. They checked for previa and no signs of that either. They couldn't find a reason for the bleeding. They thought maybe I just over did it with the grocery shopping and putting them away. I don't see how that's "too much" but whatever. Candle now weighs 4lbs.. woo hoo! So, her growth hasn't been restricted by my hypertension and my 24hr urine came back on the normal side. There is a little protein (110g) but they said they would continue to just keep an eye on it and my bp.. my bp was good today but, I lost another 3lbs this week. Inuk-- hope your GD test went well. I didn't have to fast either time I did mine.. they told me to eat normally up until I drank the glucola and then not to eat or drink anything til after my blood was drawn. I hope your orange didn't ruin it for you. Staci-- hope you are feeling better. I slept horrible last night too. Went to bed around 10 which is late for me lately and then woke up around 230 to go to the bathroom and couldn't go back to sleep til after 530 :( I'm hoping it was just because I was nervous over the bleeding and maybe that's why I couldn't sleep but I don't know. Emfine-- wow, good for you sleeping in today. Hope the furniture arrived with no problems. I'm sure that new mattress is gonna feel great!! Nicole--- I know what you mean, my stomach is so stretched the skin hurts.. like I'm gonna bust at the seems. Angie-- I'm gonna put my carseat in around 35wks as well. And, S_x??? what's that? lol

 

staci - October 2

Hey girls! Nicole, yep the skin stretching hurts. Mine usually is the skin above my belly b___ton to my b___bs. How exciting you get to see your brother and be in his wedding! I hope you have a great time! Angie, yep s_x is getting even more uncomfotable! Dh and I are pretty tired of the spooning position! And I haven't had the big O for prob. about 3 months!! That's ok though because it's very uncomfortable when I have one anyway. I'll prob. put my car seat in pretty soon as well. Can't believe I'm 33wks this week! At my next appt I get to see the position of Graci's little head! When I had that u/s with ds I could see how much hair he had, to cute! Emily did you get your furniture yet? January I"m so glad things seem to be ok! And another 3 lbs! You're going to wither away! And candle is 4lbs! to sweet! I always wonder how big Graci is. So we can look at Zayne's pics and that is about how big our babes are ;) Jen/Lin how is Zayne? And how did your MRI turn out? I can't wait until I feel like putting shower pics up! I want you all to see the onsies everyone decorated, to cute! So girls, I'm getting soooooo anxious!!! I hope the next few weeks don't go by slow!

 

LinLaceie - October 2

lol Staci that is true, Zayne is 4lbs9oz so about the size of your babies. I do think about it when I'm looking at him ... I'm like how in the world would this baby fit! My MRI went well, the doc called today and said both my kidneys are now the same size, so I don't have to worry about anything. 1 just must have gotten squished or one was just swollen while I was pregnant, either way they are good to go :) Zayne is out of the incubator now and in a crib! We have been waiting forever for it :) It's weird to see the other little babies that come in the nursery, they are all hooked up to the same monitors and machines that Zayne used to be. He is still so small but he's come so far. They are going to start bottle feeding him sometime this week and see if he takes to it alright. He still likes to desat usually when he's done feeding, he relaxes too much and his resp goes down to the 20's and we have to get him to wake up and remember to breathe, but other than that he is just doing perfect! And he should be home soon! This next weekend I'm tearing my apt up and cleaning every nook and cranny like it's never been cleaned before!! just in case he does come home early, I'll be prepared hehe January you take it easy girl! no more overdoing it!! Inuk I hope your GD test goes well! :) I couldnt eat for 6 hours before my MRI, so I couldnt eat after 12pm, I was SOOO friggin hungry by the time it was over lol They have to do a safety check on my carseat and also, they put the babies in the carseat while they are still hooked to the monitors for as long as the car ride they will take to see how they adjust to it and make sure they will do alright in the seat, so I can't put mine in till he's ready to come home. My mom bought me that d__n window sticky thing that says "baby on board" and she made me put it on my window when I was like 4 months pregnant, I didn't even have a carseat in there, made me feel real silly! lol Anyways, hope you ladies have an awesome week! Glad everyones doing so well!

 

emfine99 - October 2

Hey ladies! I got my new furniture and I just took a nap on my new mattress and I'm about ot go back for more! WOW!! I needed that about 7 months ago! It would have made things so much better for me! I'll post a before and after pic sometime next week on the piczo site..... I'm off to order the baby crib now so hopefully i will ahve a pic of her room soon too!

 

inuk-mama - October 3

Well good morning everyone! Did the GD test yesterday, three needles, and two hours of my time, but it wasn't that bad. My blood sugar was low so I'm not sure what that means? Went with my friend to do some grocery shopping while we were waiting for the next needle and that was such a mistake all it did was make me hungry again!!! So I bought some raddishes to eat once I was all done. I was super tired last night so didn't even bother with anything after making supper. DH is sick now, so I'm hoping that he'll kind of stay clear of us so we don't all get it again!! Emfine, they don't do regular appts for the test so we just go in when we have a chance and the only time I had was once I was off the air, so it was 1pm by the time I went in and 3 by the time we went for lunch! Good to hear about the furniture! And you will definitly have to post a pic of the crib! Staci, drink loads of orange juice and get rid of that cold! Nicole, have fun at that wedding! Angie, I think we'll install the car seat once we have Regan and DH comes to the hospital to pick us up. S_x? What is that again? I can count on one hand the number of times I've done that in the past few months, and it has nothing to do with my s_x drive!!!! January, glad that everything is good! Was getting worried there! Lin that is awesome about Zayne!! What a tough little guy! he's just adorable! It will be so nice for you to have him home in your arms! I am so happy for you!

 

Ashley86 - October 3

hey guys! Wow so I had an U/S and Phoenix has 1 lb and 12 oz in 2 weeks! At 30 wks he was 2 lbs 14 oz and now today he was 4 lbs 10 oz today at 32 wks and a day! They said he was measuring about 33 wks today so my precious sweet little boy is growing so good :) Today was the first time DH got to see an U/S since 10 wks and I was so happy because Phoenix showed his face (he wouldn't show it on my 30 wk U/S) The 30 wk was a diagnostic due to me not having a thyroid and today was my doctor's typical 32 wk U/S which I'm a__suming may be my last until he is born :( I hope not but who knows. They didn't tell me. I had tears in my eys today seeing his face again. I told my DH "See I told you he looks just like you ALREADY!" His face was in such amazement...last time he saw Phoenix he was just a little bean with a heartbeat. They did an internal exam today too. No dialation or effacement so that's good. They want me back in on Friday to check for some kind of protein to make sure I'm not at risk for preterm labor...Anywho...I'm really behind on posts right now because I'm reading this on my phone and scrolling down on the last post (Nov Mommies 4) takes soooo long! I'm out of town until October 15th...so if for some reason I don't get on again before then, you can a__sume all is fine. :)

 

angie m - October 3

Good morning! Well I am glad that I am not the only one finding s_x next to impossible these days. Maybe if I had a s_x drive I would try harder to find a position that worked but since I don't want to anyways it makes it really hard to even get up the energy to try. My poor hubby : (. Thank you all for letting me know when you were going to be putting in your car seats. I really want to make sure to give my 4 year old little girl time to get used to being in the very back of the van and not feel like her little sister is taking her spot. But since her big brother is back there she will probably love it and feel like a big girl. And I don't want to have any empty car seat in my van for too long it would just make me want my little one more. January I am glad that everything is going good with you and Candle. That is great that your cervix is still long, but wow you lost another 3lbs. Candle must be taking it all from you. It is so crazy that we all have about a 4lb little one in there. WOW Staci 3 months, you poor thing. If I didn't get anything out of all the effort I have to go through there is no way I would be doing it at all. But yeah it does kinda hurt afterwards, thankfully so far I haven't had contractions afterwards though which I did have happen later in my pregnancy with all my other ones. How are you feeling, is your cold getting better? And I hope that the next few weeks fly by too. I have almost everything ready so now it is just a waiting game. Jen/Lin WOW Zayne is getting so big so fast. That is GREAT! And how exciting that he is in the big boy crib now. He will be home before you know it. I am glad that everything everything went good with your MRI. So now that your kidneys are looking good does that mean that you are all healed from the problems that you had from the pre-eclampsia(sp?)? I hope so. That is to funny about your mom getting you that window sticky, and really sweet. Just looking out for her grand baby. Good luck getting your house all ready for Zayne. Emfine I am glad that you got all your furniture and can't wait to see pics of it. Inuk-Mama 3 needles YUCKY! I hate needles but I am glad that it wasn't too bad for you. That really sucks that you had to go that long without eating. I am sure you were starving by the time you finally got to eat. That sucks that your hubby is now sick. Mine is too, he is all stuffed up and I swear he wines more about it then the kids did LOL. Men they are such babies. Ashley that is so great that you and hubby got to see your little man. And I have tears in my eyes every time I see my little one too. It is just so amazing to actually see that little person that is in there kicking and making us so miserable. Reminds us that it is all worth it. Good luck at your appointment on Friday. I hope that you all are having a great day!

Hey ladies. INuk that is good that you had good luck for your gd test. I hate that. I think I would rather go through labor. Oh well. The hospital just called me and I have to meet the OB at 8am tommorow and if all looks good she will try and turn the baby tommorow. AHHH I am so not ready. DH and I got alot done on the house this week but had a full weekend of work with my parents coming to help. As much as I am getting uncomfortable I am very willing to be pregnant for another few weeks this being the last time. Staci glad you had a good time at your shower and gots lots of cute stuff. Linlacie I read about Zane and that is soo great that he is doing so well. Emfine congrats on the furniture. We got a new matress before Xmas last year and omg if I had of known I would sleep like I did I would have got one years ago. Ashley congrats on Phoenix gaining weight. It always makes you feel good that if something did happen the baby is a good size. Well I am off to clean clean and clean and then maybe think about a name for the baby. I get to pick out one of each as we don't know. If you don't hear from me for a few days then I ended up having the baby early. Lets hope not. Talk to everyone later and have a great weekend if not.

 

inuk-mama - October 3

Melissa good luck with the baby names! I keep wanting to change Regan's name now! Thinking Ryan or Reece? Anyways, I am soo tired today! All I want to do is go hide in a room and sleep for a few hours! But with Dh sick as he is, I know I'll end up doing everything once we get home! :( Maybe DD will get her wish of Kraft Dinner for supper. lol how healthy! We do eat proper meals every day except when we're all sick or tired. Then it's easy to make dinners! I'm heading to bed early tonight! Probably right after I watch the season premier of Criminal Minds. I think that's the only good one on tonight but I could be forgetting some? I'll check when i get home! Dustin is doing so well without having his bottle at night. He wakes up a few times crying, but I just rub his back or give him his water and he's off to sleep again. lol last night I woke up for my nightly bathroom visit and thought I'd just go look at him sleeping for a minute, well as soon as I opened his door a crack, he sat right up! I quickly shut the door but it was too late, he'd seen me, so he whined for a few minutes then fell asleep again. Lol I just couldn't help it! He's my baby and soon to be big brother!! I can't believe that I'm having these kids so close together!!! Kind of scary sometimes, but now I'm more looking forward to not being pregnant and being able to move around and play with Dustin and Casey and hold baby Regan :)
